French farmers flocked to the Eiffel Tower on Thursday, sheep in tow, to express their frustration over increasing attacks by wolves which some say have been “overprotected” by the government.
About 300 sheep bleated or lazily grazed at the foot of Paris’ most famous monument as the farmers gathered under foggy skies to demand an effective plan to stop the wolf attacks.
“Today farmers, tomorrow unemployed,” read one banner, while one of the protesters dressed as a wolf carried around a lamb.
I feel that the government must do something to protect the wolves from attacking the farmers sheep because the farmers depends on their flocks to stay employed and because it is unethical to have sheep killed and eaten by wolves from the wild. Someone from a higher authority level must step in and help the farmers now.
